In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic shifted Parachute’s ability to deliver injury prevention activities across Canada and impacted preventable injuries in significant ways, some positive and others negative. Through it all Parachute kept our eye on the ball – ensuring Canadians live a long life to the fullest by preventing injuries. We launched a new three-year Strategic Plan, grew our leadership in Vision Zero and road safety in Canada, published the landmark Evidence Summary on the Prevention of Poisoning in Canada, expanded our work in Seniors’ Fall Prevention and continued driving awareness of concussion recognition and management, including our national #CheckForConcussion campaign featuring Canadian Olympians.
